PROPERTY SUMMARY 'Landgate House' is a rather unique and interesting detached home which was built in 1972 but has been extensively extended and updated with a contemporary, modern style, the sort of property perhaps featured in the T.V. programme 'Grand Designs'. It sits on a plot of approximately 1/3 of an acre and is located adjacent to the historic Portchester Castle which is an English Heritage site with the waterfront, sailing club and village amenities nearby. The accommodation provides 2405 sq ft of living space and is laid out with a split level design, the reception level provides a home office /study, utility room, cloakroom, open plan dining room with bi-folding doors leading to a terrace and fitted kitchen (with quality white goods), from this level steps lead down to a drawing room with high ceiling and large windows / doorways opening onto the rear garden, from this room a doorway leads through to an inner hallway with stairs to an impressive vaulted ceiling master bedroom suite with dressing rooms and en-suite bathroom off, there is also a family bathroom on this level. The rear wing consists of three bedrooms, one having access to underfloor storage area. The gardens are also unique in design with a raised level providing access directly from the dining room and kitchen onto a large terrace and heated outdoor swimming pool, steps from here area lead down to a sunken garden believed to have been the original moat of Portchester Castle with a range of mature shrubs, trees and bushes, the wraps round the house on all sides, within the grounds is a large double doored storage shed and car parking facility. Accessed by a remote control gate is a sweeping crescent style driveway enclosed by mature shrubs, evergreens, trees and bushes leading to a car parking area. The house has been modernised with a contemporary style and extended over the past four years, the extensive refurbishment included re-wiring, insulation, double glazing, central heating incorporating underfloor heating and an extension to form the master bedroom suite. The house is unusual in the context of its neighbour the Castle and other properties in Castle Street which are older than 'Landgate House' although many hundred of years younger than the Castle. Early internal viewing of this unique home is strongly recommended in order to appreciate both the accommodation and location on offer.
